    Installed: does not show in game menu

    OK. I wanted to give an update on my progress. This is fixed. This is what I did, in case this comes up later for anyone else, who may need a nudge in the right direction. 1) Uninstalled the PMDG 737 and RAAS Pro. Edited the DLL.dll file by erasing the entered edits of the installs to look like the original file before any installs or edits (i.e. used backup of the original DLL). _________________________________________________ <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <SimBase.Document Type="AceXML" version="3,0" id="dll"> <Descr>AceXML Document</Descr> <Filename>dll.xml</Filename> </SimBase.Document> _________________________________________________ 2) Reinstalled the PMDG 737 and RAAS Pro (in that order). RECHECKED the DLL.dll file and there was one difference between them (there was an entry for the PMDG HUD missing from the "errored" DLL, <Launch.Addon>, bold typed below to show what I mean). I cannot explain why the initial install didn't write it, or perhaps it was over-written. In either case, or some other reason, the second install was flawless. This is just an explanation to what I found. _________________________________________________ <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <SimBase.Document Type="AceXML" version="3,0" id="dll"> <Descr>AceXML Document</Descr> <Filename>dll.xml</Filename> <Launch.Addon> <Name>PMDG_Interface</Name> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <Path>PMDG\DLLs\PMDG_Interface.dll</Path> <DllStartName>module_init</DllStartName> <DllStopName>module_deinit</DllStopName> </Launch.Addon> <Launch.Addon> <Name>RAASPRO</Name> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <Path>.\RAASPRO\RAASPRO.dll</Path> <DllStartName>module_init</DllStartName> <DllStopName>module_deinit</DllStopName> </Launch.Addon> <Launch.Addon> <------------------------------ HERE <Name>PMDG_HUD_interface</Name> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <Path>PMDG\DLLs\PMDG_HUD_interface.dll</Path> <DllStartName>module_init</DllStartName> <DllStopName>module_deinit</DllStopName> </Launch.Addon> </SimBase.Document> _________________________________________________ 3) After this, everything is working superb, as always, and as expected. The absence of that one line in the DLL.dll file apparently caused both entries (PMDG HUD and RAAS Pro) to not run correctly, or at all. 4) Again, this is fixed, and thanks for your input. As always, I am thoroughly enjoying your products. Thanks for doing what you do.

    Installed: does not show in game menu

    My c:\ drive is my SSD, which is only 225 GB. There isn't room for the P3D program and all its addons. P3D main sits on the D:\ drive. I did this manual edit. Didn't change.
  3. I need help to figure out why RAAS 64bit pro is not showing in game menu. It shows in the DLL file in Program data. By the way, I am reinstalling software from a windows 7 to windows 10. Everything has worked flawlessly until now. <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <SimBase.Document Type="AceXML" version="3,0" id="dll"> <Descr>AceXML Document</Descr> <Filename>dll.xml</Filename> <Launch.Addon> <Name>PMDG_Interface</Name> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <Path>PMDG\DLLs\PMDG_Interface.dll</Path> <DllStartName>module_init</DllStartName> <DllStopName>module_deinit</DllStopName> </Launch.Addon> <Name>PMDG_HUD_interface</Name> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <Path>PMDG\DLLs\PMDG_HUD_interface.dll</Path> <DllStartName>module_init</DllStartName> <DllStopName>module_deinit</DllStopName> </Launch.Addon> <Launch.Addon> <Name>RAASPRO</Name> <Disabled>False</Disabled> <ManualLoad>False</ManualLoad> <Path>.\RAASPRO\RAASPRO.dll</Path> <DllStartName>module_init</DllStartName> <DllStopName>module_deinit</DllStopName> </Launch.Addon> </SimBase.Document>

    WOW!

    I wanted to take just a moment (amongst ALL the wonderful and inquisitive questions everyone is posting while trying to learn as quick as they can about the NEW 747 QOTS v3 Boeing aircraft) to say a VERY heart-felt... ! ! ! THANK YOU ! ! ! I am sure I will have plenty of questions, as many do now, but before I read ALL the accompanying documentation that comes with this 747 aircraft, I wanted to say how easy the install went. 1. The Navigraph install 1702 installed as it should (for me, I deleted the Navdata and SidStars folder-contents to avoid conflict). Did exactly what it was supposed to do. No out-of-date FMC messages. 2. Updated the Ops Center and aircraft installed perfectly after the updates were installed. 3. Had to update AS2016 - the sky has never looked as good as it does from the 747 v3 captains seat (woo!) 4. VAS is amazingly low considering the details in this aircraft! The visuals are stunning! 5. The SOUNDS are absolutely the best you have brought to the sim-platform to date (IMHO). Sitting with sound-canceling Bose headphones brings this to such a level above all others. 6. The liveries available are stunning. Compliments to those who took the time to make the detailed paints. To sum it up, I am quite happy with this product, just minutes after "opening the box". Thank you, and please let all those involved know WE are grateful for all their hard work.

    Boarding sound

    I have been out of the loop for a while, but isn't it standard ops now to keep the cockpit door shut? Obviously the door would have to open at some time, whether for the fuel loads, manifests, etc. But, in general, does the door simply stay open/shut until pushback?
  6. Thanks for all you are doing! It continues to bring joy to my flight experiences!

    Longest Sim 737NGX Flight Without Refueling?

    In Real-Life, we did a family trip to Anchorage, Alaska (PANC) from Houston, Texas (KIAH), non-stop, years ago. I believe, a 737-800. Regardless, it was roughly an 8.5 hour flight, at around 2900 nm (though Simbrief rates the flight at 7.5 hrs). Let me tell you, it obviously made the flight-distance, but for the passengers, cramped, not fed, and only feeding peanuts was about the dumbest and worst flight of cramped--ness I had ever experienced with any airline (as well as the longest, for me). The scenery below was stunning. The flight was in late June. If I were to do this flight again, I think I would rather go out of Seattle, than Houston, just to shorten the flight. It was uncomfortable, and I felt cramped the whole flight. Not to mention, no food is just ridiculous for an 8.5 hour flight. I never knew these small planes could be so versatile on long-haul flights. I never realized that these smaller planes could fly so far, for so long. However, I see why Boeing is retiring the 747 since their smaller planes can literally do the same longer flights that they couldn't years ago. Considering the flight from New York to London is around 3100 nm miles, perhaps there will be a change from the airlines to the smaller 737? Seems the business model is steering that direction. I took a video of the landing, and posted on YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=takH6csSTpo).

    FDSFX Panel.zip installed into 737NGX

    Well, I have, but I cannot get the cut-paste function to work with this website. It asked me to allow access to the clipboard, and I did. But, I still cannot cut-paste anything to the post I am trying to write, and I am not about to type the whole thing. And no, can't attach anything, either. I don't know what it is about THIS website that I can't paste or attach anything. Perhaps my security settings? Anyway, yes, it can be done. I have done it for years and it works. Since I cannot post here, perhaps at Flightsim.com website? I know I can cut-paste there.

    Hydraulics Elec 1 + 2 overheat / low pressure

    I can't say whether it was a bug from the early days. If it is, for what ever reason, it is being triggered by something now, that for the longest time, has not - ever (for me). BOTH hydraulics A and B are overheating, and appear so in the FMC failures section. Yes, I followed the QRH for what I interpreted was a failure and found I had to turn both switches off, leaving me with little control of the airplane. The question isn't what to do when it happens. The question is WHY does it keep happening when it hasn't up-until-now. If it IS a bug, nothing has triggered it for me until now (years). I have searched other posts for an answer to this. But, have found nothing, hence the posting now.

    Hydraulics Elec 1 + 2 overheat / low pressure

    Simply, I fly from Orlando - FL, a lot. All cases, this is where I was taking off. It has been hot, but around 35° - 37°C (95°-98°F) approximately (actual temps). In all cases this has occurred, I set the fuel to 1/3 full fuel tanks from the FMC (relative to the distance of flight). Since this is a recent eventuality, and the only recent change is the addon Active Sky 2016, I have no idea what the cause is. I have used Active Sky Next for years, and this has not occurred. Not casting stones, just the only thing that has changed. I am unsure that AS16 would be the cause. Also, I noted (because I am brainstorming) that at least once I had a prolonged tarmac delay. Would sitting on the tarmac cause this Hydraulic A/B overheat? I have read other posts from the past (regarding this same issue) that it could be a fault saved from flight to flight. Since I don't save any of my flights, I don't see how this could be it. I DID look into the Default, CLDDRK, LONG and SHORT.sav files under the "fuel temp" section. All of them have a value of "10013".
  11. I have apparently hit something in the setup menus on the FMC that is now causing me to have this simultaneous failure occur with relative persistence. How do I stop this dual-failure from continually occurring on nearly every flight? * I don't save nor reuse flights * I don't know what I have changed to cause this, but this is a recent event * I don't have failures turned on * It is consistent, the only failure that is occurring, both Hydraulics Elec 1 + 2, overheat/low pressure * This is always on the ground while setting up for a takeoff * This will NOT reset within the failures menu * I use Active Sky 2016 (live weather) Any thoughts / ideas? I have used the PMDG 737 NGX for quite a while. This has never happened until now. I expect it is something I have done.

    New voices for FO? How to?

    Thanks to all. I am SOOooo sorry I didn't understand that minor difference. I apologize for my ignorance. Thanks for straightening me out. I am grateful for the feedback, and thanks for always putting out a GREAT product! Cheers!

    New voices for FO? How to?

    I just installed the update to the 777 Fs2Crew extra voice / version 2. It seems to run just fine, except I cannot find where the updated FO packs are. I have the same voice versions, as I thought came with version 1 (US1, UK1, EU, AU, and FR). Where is Germany, Scandinavia, Asia, Spain/Latin and Italy? I use the CFG to change to the various voice sets, but there doesn't seem to be a CFG for the added voice sets. What am I doing wrong? Many thanks. Other than this, the version 2 seems to work fine. Of course, I installed with Admin rights from the unzipped file.

    P3D V3.2

    FYI, This worked for me, too. A clean UNISTALL, including ALL sub directories. This procedure is VERY recommended when updating from a previous version of P3D, such as 3.1 - 3.2. Very good info, and positive results. Peace.

    Volume not staying at level I saved it

    Bryan, Thank you for your time and consideration of my question. I appreciate your dedication. I continue to enjoy your add-ons for flight simming products. It simply wouldn't be the same without you. Peace.
